Together we work to succeed

Parent Survey 2018

Parent Survey 2018


At regular intervals throughout the year, we send out parent questionnaires. This is for a number of purposes.

to develop an open and honest relationship with parents and carers

to provide feedback on how well the school is providing for the children

to support the identification of areas for school development and enable us to prioritise effectively

to provide evidence on the effectiveness of the school.


We use the Ofsted Parent View Questions


1. My child enjoys school

2. The school keeps my child safe

3. My child makes good progress at this school

4. My child is well looked after at this school

5. The child is taught well at this school

6. My child receives appropriate homework for their age

7. The school makes sure its pupils are well behaved

8. The school deals effectively with bullying

9. The school is well led and managed

10. The school responds well to any concerns I raise

11. I receive valuable information from the school about my child’s progress

12. Would you recommend this school to another parent?


 This is the outcome of the survey that parents completed during July 2018


We had 29 surveys returned (out of 36 families)

We are very pleased with these outcomes and the support we receive from parents and carers.

We are reassured by the zero responses for  strongly disagrees or disagrees.


We will continue to work on all apsects of our school but particularly on the areas that have  ‘strongly agree’ percentages less than 90%

These are:

6.    My child receives appropriate homework for their age.

  • May I remind parents that daily reading is a key part of our homework
  • We will be trying some different approaches to homework in Autumn 2018 so that it is even more relevant, appropriate and supports your child in making good progress


7.    The school makes sure its pupils are well behaved.

  • This is very important to myself and the Govornors and we will continue to do whatever we can to ensure that the behaviour is always 'at least good', including the behaviour for learning in lessons.


8.   This question had  a lower percentage of responses as a number of parents wrote that they were "not able to comment as no experience of this but the school has a robust policy in place."

  • we will continue to ensure that any bullying is dealt with effectively (Please see our Behaviour Policy and Anti-bullting policies for more information)


11.   I receive valuable information from the school about my child’s progress.

  • we will continue to keep you informed through:
    • having an open door policy for parents. Parents are always welcome to contact the office to make an apoointment to see me
    • sending home stickers and certificates
    • including information about who has had weekly rewards on our weekly newsletter
    • informing you directly about any concerns with regards to your child's behaviour
    • termly parents meetings where we will let you know where your child's attainment is in terms of Age Related Expectations for reading, writing and maths
  • We will also be running regular workshops for EYFS and KS1 parents in the Autumn Term 2018 to help parents to gain further understanding of key elements of our curriculum and gain an even stronger understanding of how well their child is doing.




Thank your for your continued support
